Razer makes some of the best keyboards, mice, headsets, and much more, and in most cases, the companion application is all you need to use. While the requirement to use Razer Synapse 3 has been gradually reducing, it’s still a useful tool to have on your PC.
But there’s one thing that Synapse does not do, and that’s update the firmware on your Razer gear. Firmware updates are important, especially if there are issues to address, such as a recent double-press problem on the BlackWidow V3 Pro. But to update the firmware you’ll have to download something else specific to your device.

The page is broken down into sections, so you have keyboards, mice, headsets and so on, so all you need to do is expand the right section and look for your device. If you don’t see your device listed, that means you don’t have a firmware update at all so you can end the process right there.
Essentially all you have to do is download the file, run it, and then follow the instructions on screen to correctly update your firmware.

Once you update the mouse using the relevant firmware updater, you will then be able to link the two devices through Razer Synapse 3. Synapse will also inform you ahead of time if you need to update your hardware to link them together like this.
